  1. Yeah I felt the same way. I enjoyed the whole series, but the ending was a little underwhelming.
  2. Somewhat predictably, I caved and ground the summer challenges out. Even the last couple I couldn’t really be arsed with - convinced myself I didn’t want two extra styles for the surfboard glider, but it would’ve bugged me if I hadn’t got them. I am weak for collectibles. (Still can’t be bothered to unlock anything from the battle pass bar the vbucks though; I’ll just splurge when I hit level 100!)
  3. If you have another device that can run Fortnite - a switch, an android phone or tablet for example - you can set up an alt account on that, then use the creative island codes for the featured maps to do those challenges in private games, just killing your alt account over and over. I still can’t be arsed to do them either, mind! I’d rather use my gaming time to have fun. It’s a good feeling when you realise you’re running towards fights more often than from them!
  4. Darn it, is series 1 not on All 4? Would really like to watch this.
  5. I loved Knights of the Sky! Think I played it on Amiga though - I may have had it on PC too once I made the jump, but the Amiga’s where my nostalgia for it rests. Dogfighting was ace, and nursing a bullet-ridden biplane home afterwards could be sooo tense! Pretty sure I couldn’t keep my kite in the air any longer one time, managed to land it and then puttered my way through no man’s land back to the airfield
  6. Watched this on Prime last night, really enjoyed it The “slow” bits were my favourite parts of the film, to be honest! Preferred the Western aspects to the horror stuff. I thought Chicory was a fantastic character, and Kurt Russell was great.
  7. Yeah I got abducted, put me into some weird bouncy mini game where I had absolutely no idea what was going on, rewarded me with a room full of crappy loot, then dumped me miles away.
  8. Sorry @gooner4life, I was playing from a hotel room via GeForce Now and my session timed out The performance was terrible anyway, pretty much unplayable.
  9. Very nice! Sniped just before he could use that launchpad! I find the rail gun very difficult to actually hit people with. It is great for rinsing UFOs, and pressuring builds mind.
  10. Got my first solo win of the season last night
  11. I think there was a list at some point, but I don’t think it’s been updated on a long time, so probably doesn’t represent who still plays. I’ll add you, my Epic ID is Pistol 451 (same everywhere).
  12. Cracking win with @Arn X Treme followed by some good games with @gooner4life!
  13. Had a couple of games with @gooner4life last night, loved it when you mastered the art of standing so still in a corner you became invisible
  14. Nah you’ll be fine, just don’t neglect your challenges! Getting to level 100 isn’t too hard these days, what level is the Rick & Morty stuff? (I haven’t been on yet)
  15. I’ll do my best See you all next season!
  16. Back to back wins to finish! Great to finish the season on a high note! @Shimmyhill @gooner4life
  17. New season tomorrow... anyone seeing out the old tonight?
  18. I feel like my butt is not attractive enough I even headed to risky reels when I was as low as the soles of my shoes, hoping for a bit of friendly alien abductery, but nada.
  19. It’s addictive, that’s why. Not exactly arcade stick related, but tangentially so; I’ve got into PC gaming, but can’t adjust to keyboard controls. I discovered gaming keypads, modded with analogue sticks. So far I’ve built two. My first one was perfectly adequate, but when I came across a technically better base platform for a superior mod, I couldn’t resist it. I’ve now built two, and I don’t need to build another. Doesn’t stop my wanting to, though. I was watching an eBay auction for another keypad that I absolutely didn’t need but really wanted, and got massively pissed off when either a) the auction ended early, or more likely b) I got the end time wrong and I missed out on it. This despite the fact that I absolutely do not need another keypad, the one I have is pretty much perfect. I still have plans to mod it further, of course.
  20. Sorry I had no comms last night @Shimmyhill @gooner4life, I could hear fine but couldn’t seem to come off mute. Old gamer problems!
  21. Just got a 10-kill solo squad win! Last guy was a proper cranker too, editing all over the shop but I got him low and kept the pressure on when he tried to heal. He tried a last ditch edit shot but I got him first
  22. When did you find the Forum? Around 2004, I think What made you head here and how did you discover it? I used to hang around the DVDforums, from there I found out about NTSC-UK, and from there heard about rllmuk. I frequented both for a while until I realised I much preferred the general irreverent atmosphere here What were you gaming on at the time? PS2, GameCube, and OG Xbox What game tech has been most well game changing for you over the years since joining? Online gaming - both in terms of multiplayer, and additional content Have your gaming tastes changed over the years? I don’t enjoy overly violent games any more. Maybe it’s just me getting older, maybe it was having kids, but blood, guts, swearing and gratuitous content don’t do it for me these days. What aspect of gaming we are losing that saddens you a bit? Rather than things being lost, it’s new stuff that grinds my gears. I hate that kids often prefer to just watch idiots play games while babbling yoot speak than actually play them themselves. What was the last "spark of joy" a game brought you? A f**k yeah moment? Getting my first win online in Fortnite - felt like this old duffer could still cut it
